Welcome to 2022!

We will conduct our January meeting at 7:00 pm right after the Fly-Tying Demo, at the Ludlow Elks Club, 69 Chapin Street in Ludlow MA.  We will adhere to current Virus Practices. Masks, distance, sanitizer etc.

January’s guest speaker will be Don Stewart from WMFF and TU. His presentation will be on his fly-fishing experiences fishing Alaska. Please join me in welcoming and thanking Don for taking the time to share his experiences.

We are rapidly approaching the time to renew our individual membership. As we all know due to Covid membership renewals were suspended until March of 2022. For those of you who wish to renew early your new expiration date will be March 2023.

Hope to see many of you at this coming meeting.
